From 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., enjoy the 2022 People’s Choice BBQ Competition (which may include some of our KCBS competitors) where attendees get to be the judge of who’s serving up the best tasting barbecue, which includes judging favorite fixings as well.

Once participants have finished sampling some delicious barbecue, they get to cast their votes for their favorite.
